Wait, you're telling me you believe humans were originally made to live eternally? Who told you this? And why would you believe this? That doesn't
make sense either. God is the only being that lives eternally, we humans, are simply sustained by Him. Humans, even those in heaven, do not have the
power to live eternally by themselves. They would though as long as God sustains them. Meaning humans do not have the power to live eternally like
some kind of demi-gods themselves.
Leave that aside, humans were cast out of heaven as a punishment yes. But to forgo the fact that God forgave Adam when he asked for forgiveness, means
you believe life itself is a punishment for Adams disobedience. At that point you're going to be losing me. Because life on earth (and consequently
death) is not a punishment. That would mean that the Merciful God you believe in, has put us all here because of what Adam and Eve did. Life is a
punishment, yay? Where is the sense in that?
Nay, life is not a punishment, but a stage of testing. Adam was tested, and so are every single human being that came afterwards. Oh, and this test,
doesn't take place because God does not know exactly what each and every one of us will chose. He knows very well, He knew long before He even put us
But WE dont. It would have been very unfair for us, if at the time of our creation, God simply took us and separated us into two groups, those who
believe in Him and those who believe in themselves alone. But He sent us here to show us, with the proof of our own actions, that whatever we get in
the end, is a complete and utter fairness, because we deserved it.
